Jettainer, a leading international service partner for ULD management, has introduced the ‘JettAPP’ for mobile devices – based on both the Apple and Android systems. It allows customers to determine the location of a container and even rebook it in just a few steps: the mobile device first scans the bar code on the container in question – rather like a smartphone or a tablet computer. The ULD history then becomes visible and makes it possible to check where the cargo container is located. If the container is not at the right place, the app allows it to be rebooked to a different site. The JettAPP picks up all kinds of barcodes including QR and RFID/NFC. Other uses for the app like stocktaking are being developed. The technology can particularly make it easier for station personnel employed by airlines, ground handling companies and repair shops to do their work. “The benefits are obvious” says Alexander Pluemacher, managing director of Jettainer. “The JettAPP allows companies to request and log information about a container directly on the spot. Above all, this improves the data quality which not only means enormous savings in terms of time, but also an increase in efficiency. Other functions like damage reporting or flights movements are conceivable inthe next version.”
